Steelers practice squad projections ahead of preseason Week 3

With final cuts coming very soon, here are my projections for who will be on the Steelers’ practice squad.

We are entering the final week of preseason play, which means every NFL team will be cutting their respective rosters down to 53 players.

The Steelers won’t have too many nitty-gritty decisions to make when it comes to their roster, but there will be a couple guys on the fringe who don’t make the cut. These are my projections on who the 16 players will be on the practice squad.


  • QB Tanner Morgan
  • RB Xazavian Valladay
  • RB Greg Bell
  • WR Dez Fitzpatrick
  • WR Jordan Byrd
  • TE Rodney Williams
  • OL Spencer Anderson
  • OL Dylan Cook

Valladay made an impression as an athlete, as did Byrd. It wouldn’t shock me if Anderson made the 53-man roster. If Williams was on any other team, he would have a good shot of being the third tight end on a team.


  • DL Montravius Adams
  • LB David Perales
  • LB Nick Kwiatkowski
  • LB Quinchy Roche
  • CB Madre Harper
  • CB Luc Barcoo
  • S Tre Norwood
  • S Kenny Robinson

Adams is another fringe guy, but I think he gets edged out by a few other defensive linemen who have had more impressive showings in camp and preseason. Norwood and Robinson will be two reliable options to call up in case of injury.
